From a panel of marketing professionals representing small, medium and large companies in our region, participants will develop a clear understanding of the fundamentals required in an effective plan. From situation analysis to market identification, hear how the experts mapped their plans down to the details. Additional topics covered in the Academy include branding basics, marketing through technology, and messaging.
